Your only limit is your imagination! With a focus on Oxy /fuel torch welding this weekend course will introduce you  to the “tack and bend” method of creating metal sculpture. Students will be introduced to metal as a medium for creative expression. Emphasis will be given to conceptual awareness while developing technical and creative skills. Using oxy acetylene welding and brazing, students will be introduced to the safe use of the tools and techniques used to create welded metal sculptures.  No experience necessary. ***This class is open to ages 16 and up.

Taken this class before? Students who re-enroll can use this class as "shop time" to finish projects from before, or start on something new and have Paul work with you independently on pushing your skills.
